Our Teams


 

To create a sense of belonging and enable students to connect with their peers and teachers meaningfully, students belong to a class and all the classes at each year level belong to a team. The creates the feeling of a small school within a big school.

At Cockle Bay school each Team is represented by New Zealand native bird. The birds as a special part of the history of Cockle Bay and were introduced around 1991.

Students take time in Term 1 to learn about their bird and often feel a sense of pride and belonging when they talk about their bird.
